Nicholas Rosales walked through the doors ofChampion’s QUEST back in January of 2016 with short-term goals of improving his agility, upper body and core strength to improve his athleticism on the soccer field. Nicholas went on to earn team MVP honors on his Cypress High School Frosh/Soph soccer team this past season.
As a freshman, Nicholas also ran with the Varsity Cross Country team and had goals of running with the Varsity Track team as well. Nicholas worked hard to improve his strength at Champion’s QUEST and went on to accomplish his goal. He competed with the Varsity Track & Field team this past season and finished in 28th place in the 800m and 24th in the 1600m during the Jim Polite Walnut Invitational.
“His core is a lot stronger and you can just tell by the way that he moves. Nicholas has that extra gas in the tank when he competes. When the bell rings for the final lap of the race, he can just take off and doesn’t let anyone catch him.” -Pamela Rosales
Keep up all the hard work Nicholas and I’m excited to hear about many more accomplishments in the future!
